The Minnesota Legislature allocated funds to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture to develop a program to assist local units of government with agricultural planning and zoning issues and livestock siting issues. As a result of this legislative action, the Local Land Use and Livestock Siting Program was formed to partner with townships, counties, livestock producers and commodity organizations and to bring information, research and technical expertise to the livestock siting process.
